Anyone found any good resources for keeping up to date with android?

Hopefully Jeff will be able to recommend a few (maybe even plug his own twitter/blog??)

So far, I've got the android group on google-groups bookmarked (very active) and of course the android forum here

Havent found any good twitter feeds yet, or any good blogs to follow

Hi James,

I have a few Android resources to share. I'll shamelessly begin by plugging a pair of articles I wrote last year for my website ... I wrote these two articles to get started with Android in a command-line context:

  • Hello, Android!
  • Android Activity Lifecycle

  • Hello, Android!, my first Android article, talks about installing the Android SDK (version 1.6), presents a very simple command-line-oriented Hello, Android! app, and shows how to create, install, and run this app.

    Android Activity Lifecycle, my second Android article, presents an overview of an activity's lifecycle followed by a small app that demonstrates this lifecycle.

    Additionally, I've found the following resources to be helpful:

  • Android Core - Android Tutorial
  • Android Development Tutorial - Froyo
  • Beginning Android Game Programming
  • Inside the Android Application Framework

  • This is only the beginning and a Google Search should reveal many more helpful resources.

    By the way, you might want to periodically check out my own website (http://javajeff.mb.ca) as I'll be posting additional Android content in the coming months. The main page presents the most current blog post; you can access the entire blog (to review previous blog posts) by clicking the blog link in the "Commenting directly to the blog is not supported. Please email your comments to me instead." message that follows a blog post.

    All the best.

    Jeff

    @James: Android FAQ page on JavaRanch lists some reference material you might want to check out.
     
    It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
